The Group 3 Ethereal Stakes is a 2000m event held annually on Caulfield Cup Day for three-year-old fillies, is run under set weights and penalty conditions and boasts a prize pool of $200,000.

This race has been known as the Ethereal Stakes since 2011, after the race was named in honour of Ethereal who completed the Caulfield Cup/Melbourne Cup double in 2001.

From 2000 to 2011, the Ethereal Stakes was classified as a Handicap race before being upgraded to Listed level in 2011. After being run as a Listed race until 2014, the Ethereal Stakes was upgraded to Group 3 level in 2015.

The Ethereal Stakes has proven to be a good form race for the VRC Oaks later in the spring, as Set Square and Pinot completed the double in 2014 and 2017, respectively.

Notable winners of the Ethereal Stakes include Renaissance Woman (2022), Verry Elleegant (2018), Pinot (2017), Set Square (2014), Arabian Gold (2013), Astronomia (2005), Hierogram (2002) and Lolita Star (2000).

Recent Ethereal Stakes winners

  • Autumn Angel ($4.80) managed to run down Tropical Squall ($2.00) in the shadows of the post to claim the Group 3 Ethereal Stakes (2000m) at Caulfield. The Peter Moody & Katherine Coleman-trained filly ran into the minor money in the Group 2 Stutt Stakes (1600m) at Moonee Valley on September 29, and has bounced to an impressive victory thanks to a perfectly timed ride by Billy Egan. He was able to navigate a path to the lead along the inside running rail, while the daughter of The Autumn Sun produced a stunning turn-of-foot to defeat the Sydney raider. Basilina ($41.00) was strong to the line, filling out the trifecta spot, while the Chris Waller-trained Konasana ($7.00) was far from disgraced rounding out the top four. It was all honours the winner though, as Autumn Angel looks to press on to the Group 1 VRC Oaks (2500m) on November 9.
  • Renaissance Woman (+400) and Josh Parr have taken out the Ethereal Stakes over Foxy Cleopatra (+380) and the runaway leader Pavitra (+500), who stuck on for third. Both Renaissance Woman and Foxy Cleopatra came from the very back of the field and rounded the bend five and six wide getting out to what looked to be the better ground. As they rounded the bend Pavitra had a three-length lead still, but they quickly ate into the lead and paired off to clear out by over two lengths on the line to fight out the finish.
  • A Damian Lane special has seen the Mick Price & Michael Kent Jnr-trained Daisies (+900) claim the Ethereal Stakes at Caulfield. Lane took off mid-race and took up the lead, after the leading duo slammed the brakes on, and allowed his mount to run along at her own pace. Although she was still a maiden, Daisies extended her lead on the home turn and kicked away from Glint Of Hope (+1100) and Biscayne Bay (+1400), who ran on from the back to fill the placings.
  • Anthony & Sam Freedman and Ben Melham have combined with Chica Fuerte (+450) to claim the Group 3 Ethereal Stakes at Caulfield. When Chica Fuerte got into a rhythm and ran the race to suit herself, she didn’t give her rivals a chance after booting clear on the home turn to put the race to bed by the 200m mark. After sticking on well from just behind the leaders, Star Of Eden (+3000) was nabbed on the line for second place by the fast-finishing Salto Angel (+1800).
  • Archie Alexander-trained Gamay (+600) has clung on to defeat the race favourite Vegas Jewel (+250) in the Group 3 Ethereal Stakes. After going into the race undefeated, Vegas Jewel appeared to have the eventual winner covered at the 100m mark, but Declan Bates got the most out of his filly and she kept fighting to the line. Behind the top two was Celestial Falls (+380) in third place, who stuck on well after leading the race.
